It may fit but it is not the proper geometry and will probably hit the leafs. The tierod on a YJ is from knucke to knuckle, the Cherokee tie rod goes from the driver knucke to the draglink and the draglink connects the pass knuckle to pitman arm.

x2. the ends fit in the knuckles, but the geometry of it is a downgrade compared to the yj. i was toying with the idea of putting a beefy tie rod from the V8 zj's in my yj, but with the geometry difference and the difference in the steering stabilizer location, i decided not too.
